Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appétit! continues the tradition of cooking imaginary food for imaginary people.

Unused Graphics

To do:
  • Add any remaining Cooking Mama 4 leftovers, placeholder item icons.
  • Add the rest of the files from the test folders.



A stock image of a bed and a lamp in a room.


Two graphics for a Fair background. They are near identical to the final versions with the exception of ゲーム (Game) written on top, and a small section missing from the lower left corner of the main image.


A tiny dummy texture attached to a broom model.



Graphics for a debug display are hidden in a file named DemoResource.bch.

Test Folders

As a tradition to Cooking Mama games, some of the files are split up into folders named after different developers: Aoyagi, Inagaki, Ishida, Sudo, Taguchi, Tonaki, and Yama. All, except Aoyagi and Yama, contain a test folder.

Inagaki's test folder

Ishida's test folder

This test folder is one of the big ones.

This button is a base of some buttons used. It has one material animation called button_base_00_00__00, playing it crashes Ohana 3ds. It's similar to the final one called btn_base_00.chres located in Ishida\Com\Btn with a material animation with the same name but doesn't crash and transparency is set on the model.


Cm5 btnbase 02.png

This is an early version of btn_01.chres located in Ishida\Com\Btn.

Regional Differences

USA Europe
Cooking Mama 5- Bon Appétit!-title.png Cooking Mama- Bon Appétit!-title.png

The logo was widened for the European release, due to the lack of "5" in the title. The publisher credit on the bottom was replaced with a developer credit, as the European version of the game was published by Nintendo.
